The Africa Cup of Nations 2019 winds up when The Desert Foxes of Algeria meet the Teranga Lions of Senegal in a blockbuster final at the Cairo International Stadium tonight.

Senegal got the better of Tunisia while Algeria beat the Super Eagles of Nigeria to draw battle lines for a potentially explosive final.

The Foxes will be looking up to Manchester City winger Riyad Mahrez, who scored a sublime free kick in stoppage time against Nigeria, for inspiration while the Senegalese will be hoping that Liverpool striker Sadio Mane will be firing from all cylinders tonight.

The two sides also met in the Group stages this campaign, with Algeria beating the Lions by a solitary goal to nil.

In fact, Senegal have not beaten Algeria since 2008, with the Foxes prevailing over the Lions in 5 out of the last 6 outings but this game is a completely different ballgame.

Africa awaits to see its new king, kick off is 21:00hrs.
